The music group JAGMAC, made up of six siblings from Baltimore, has been named Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing,” according to a press release from Disney.

As the “Next Big Thing,” JAGMAC will be featured starting this month in a series of “NBT” videos on Radio Disney, Disney Channel, the Radio Disney app, the DisneyNOW app and social media platforms.

The group debuted their single “Right Back With You” during an interview on Radio Disney last week.

The group is in good company. Previous “NBT” artists have included Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Fifth Harmony, Kelsea Ballerini and Alessia Cara.

JAGMAC gets its name from the first initial of the four brothers and two sisters: Jared, Angelique, Gabriel, Manjo, Alyssa and CJ. According to their website, they sing, dance and play instruments including the guitar, piano, bass and drums. They still live in Baltimore when they are not on tour.

In 2016, the group’s single “So Good” hit the No. 20 spot on the Radio Disney Top 30 chart in 2016, and their single “Soldiers” hit the No. 15 spot on Billboard’s Hot Club chart. They also were the opening act for Little Mix during a tour of the U.K. that year.

Next up is a performance on April 30 at the Musexpo in Los Angeles. According to their website, they are planning a summer tour as well.
